This may look doctored but it's actually not. The glow of this body of water is created by micro-organisms that are half-plant, half-animal and apparently go a little nuts at night. Somehow the result of their nutty-ness is this blue glow.
Known as the "The Dark Hedges," this glorious line of trees has been used in dozens of movies and television shows and is one of the area's biggest tourists draws. There was a big brouhaha a few years ago when unsightly fences were put up in front of the trees.
Peaks of the Southern Atlantic submarine ridge form the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago and Rocas Atoll off the coast of Brazil. They represent a large proportion of the island surface of the South Atlantic and their rich waters are extremely important for the breeding and feeding of tuna, shark, Peaks of the Southern Atlantic submarine ridge form the Fernando de Noronha Archipelago and Rocas Atoll off the coast of Brazil. They represent a large proportion of the island surface of the South Atlantic and their rich waters are extremely important for the breeding and feeding of tuna, shark, turtle and marine mammals. The islands are home to the largest concentration of tropical seabirds in the Western Atlantic. Baia de Golfinhos has an exceptional population of resident dolphin and at low tide the Rocas Atoll provides a spectacular seascape of lagoons and tidal pools teeming with fish.

This grotto is part of a system of waterways that are the equivalent of bridges and tunnels located in Roca Vecchia. May as well join the bridge & tunnel crowd and have some fun in the big city grotto. Report back when you're done.
The one and only thing in life more incredible than the Tuileries in the spring is the Tuileries in the fall. This is often the first place I come when I'm in town and it never, never, never fails to amaze no matter how many times I see it. Just looking at it makes me wish I were there right now.
my wife and i spent 3 nights in monterosso at manuels guest house. it was awesome. the town is filled with interesting people, lots of great food and an after-hours candy shop doubling as the local late-night hangout!
This 'hood gets shunned by locals outside of it for being too out there and too touristy, but I actually really dig it and am here often. Love all the restaurants and I especially love the little cafes where I can spend hours sipping on coffee and eating Italian desserts while working on my laptop.
Named for its resemblance to the Morning Glory flower, this natural hot spring's appearance is actually caused by bacteria. Sadly, the spring is being diminished by the selfishness and vandalism of tourists.
stunningly gorgeous. depending on when you go the waterfalls off the mountains are quite different. the best time to go is in spring when the snow is just melting. by the end of summer it's like a low flow shower head.
If you’ve ever wanted to spend the night in a cave but hate the idea of roughing it, this hotel is your chance. While we’re pretty sure the Hittites never had mini-bars, you’ll still feel the weight of the area’s ancient history.
